Image to Vector – For Attractive Posters

Posters are a great way to attract customer attention. Some even have a life-like quality that can be engaging to the viewer for a longer time. Interested in knowing how image to vector works for attractive posters?

The next time you are having a promotion in the café, or store or the mall that also extends to the web displays, consider having posters. It is a fantastic way to lure people. The ones with great effects, large cut outs and expressions are ideal to install. But before that a little creative imagination needs to be worked for the brief for it to succeed. If you are choosing images for posters try the digital services of an online photo studio. This is where the action packed images can be created, designed and sent in the most proficient way in less time.  Online studios provide end-to-end solutions for all conversions of image to vector. The editors can convert images of any form into their respective vector forms using image to vector techniques. For example, a bitmap image needs to be made scalable for making a grand poster. Working with a bitmap image becomes very difficult as it is in the form of pixels or dots. One cannot resize or rotate these images without converting them into their respective vector formats. In case if the image has not been converted to a vector form, then it is likely to be a pixated, cheap-looking image of the object and designers will complain that they cannot modify the image. But by converting them to their respective raster forms gives them the required scalability and malleability.

With the advent of the Internet, this application is now an excellent way to convert image to vector format. There are many stock images available for free on the net. These can be used creatively according to the brief to make a poster. The Internet is a treasure house of stock vectors, which are available for viewing online. One just needs to go online in order to see this collection. These stock vectors carry the advantage of scalability without losing the original nuance of the image. Using these stock vectors images can be rotated, resized, enlarged or shrunk without as much as losing the image quality. Stock vectors in various designs are available online, ready to be downloaded, for all advertisement needs. Although most sites offer stock vectors for free, few others provide them relatively cheaply.

However, only a graphic designer can understand the nuances of a bitmap and a vector image. Hence when posters are being designed from image to vector format, the file type recognizes the difference between the bitmap and vector. The file extension type is the giveaway. An image file ends in .jpg, gifr, and .bmp. On the other hand, a vector file has the extension .eps, .ai, .cdr. This will make it easier to differentiate between the two. A very common query among people working with bitmap files is whether they can drag a .jpg file into a program like Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw and then save it as an .eps file? Dragging a bitmap file into a program as above will just embed the file into the program and it will not be possible to modify the resulting file. Online studios have software that solves this problem. They provide these services at competitive rates to make the best posters.

PNG to Vector – Practical For Web Based Designs

With the increase in the requirement of digital pictures on websites, the need for PNG to vector format has become important.  Be it a logo or a product or series of items, they all can go through this essential photo process for better visuals.

PNG file format is an abbreviation for Portable Network Graphics format is great for the web, but cannot be used for transparencies. This file type is characterized by glossy and glossless compression, both 1-bit and full channel transparency, small file sizes, poor support in some web browsers for full channel transparency, compression not as great as in glossy formats.  Thus working with such files becomes difficult and therefore they are needed to be converted to a vector format. In effect, PNG files are typical raster format files. Some practical examples of raster graphics programs are Adobe Photoshop, Jasc Paintshop Pro, Macromedia Fireworks (tailored to web design) and the GIMP.

On the other hand, mathematical rules-widths, heights, curves, proportions, and ratios characterize vector files. Raster images have a fixed height and width and look stretched when enlarged beyond the set boundaries, whereas vector format files tend to occupy the space provided to them, because they are resolution independent. Typical examples of vector graphics programs are Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw, Macromedia Freehand, Macromedia Fireworks (tailored to web design), and popular animation program Macromedia Flash. Although, vector graphics may remedy all the shortcomings of raster graphics, i.e. being able to be resized without loss of quality, no pixilation, great reduction in file size.

On the contrary, a photograph cannot be converted into a vector graphic, as it is not vector data. Similarly, a sunset cannot be represented mathematically as the real world is not vector based. Vector graphics is used only for images such as typefaces, lines, and curves. Photographs and complex raster effects like lens flares have to be defined with pixel-by-pixel lighting and color effects and not with vector graphics. Raster graphics may create great logos with lens flares, bevels and gradients, but they cannot create images in a huge banner or printings on headed notepaper. But, logos for businessmen and corporate identities are always created with vector graphics because this will allow their maximum usage.

Other applications of PNG and vector formats are designing and preparation of websites. A website can be designed using either raster based formats or vector based formats. In the former Photoshop is used and in the latter Illustrator is utilized. Other applications of vector-based formats are designing logos online. In this application we generally use this format, as the logo needs to be scalable so that it can be improvised on later. But not all browsers can read vector formats. There are some websites that can read only PNG formats. So in effect, if the logo is to be printed then a vector format is used otherwise a bitmap format is resorted to.

PNG to vector format is very practical and useful on the websites. Photo studios have specialized software with the above applications. It can be done at very economical rates even if there are bulk orders. A dedicated customer service team understands the client’s requirements via email.  Then they provide the application fitting for the creative. Check the portfolio on the company’s website to know how other clients have been benefited too.

Raster to Vector Conversions Define Graphic Art Images

Photo editing is marked with numerous ways to create art like images.  But these images appear only when they are vectorized. Not all pictures come to the editing table in a digital format that is scalable. When raster and vector formats are combined they offer a paradigm shift to the perspective of the image.

There are several editing programs that are used by professional editors. They are required to retouch, restore, manipulate or create new files. When they are worked on they can be saved in any format. But when they are on the editing table they are either vector or raster (also called bitmap). They have pixels that define the images. Some examples of bitmap are web based pictures or even pictures shot from an ordinary camera.  The image resolution determines the grid. This in turn shows us how many pixels the image has. Has it ever occurred to you that the pixel is just a spot of color? And when several such spots called dots are put on a grid it makes the entire picture. Depending on the image size the number of the pixels is calculated. And because there are a limited number of pixels or dots, the image resolution is fixed. It can be scaled only to a limited degree. Which means, if a bitmap image is reduced then some of the original pixels are discarded. This affects the overall look of the image. And if the same picture is increased in height, it appears distorted. Hence these bitmap or raster images need to be put in the vector format.

The vector format is very flexible. The images in such a configuration can be maneuvered in many creative ways. There is no question of pixels or limited resolution. Hence they can be reduced or increased to any dimensions. The structure of these images is of malleable shapes and geometrical lines.   This system is best to make multifaceted logos and a host of other things. Many architectural renderings and illustrations are also defined by this system. If a raster image is converted to a vector one then it can redefine it into a graphic art.

A vector image can be reduced to the size of a small business card, or a passport size picture. Suc an image moves from point to point and can be traced also. This helps in editing as numerous clipping path techniques can be applied to achieve results. It can be enlarged too for an ad campaign. In either diametrically opposite size the quality of the image does not suffer. Now editors are making these images more creative. With the addition of a background (transparent or opaque) a new perspective is given. For more value addition, drop shadow or reflections also can be used. A vector image can be made into a pixilated (bitmap) one but it is difficult to do the technique other way round. Some of the editing programs that offer the best raster to vector conversions are Auto CAD, Adobe, Auto Desk, Corel Draw, Metafile, Macintosh, Windows, Illustrator, PNG, and Targa Bitmap.

Using both the paths is also extending the creative imagination. Both are inter-dependent on each other. With the right program, the editor is capable of producing the best results. But for all practical purposes vector images are far more popular with the professional online editors.

Battle of the Techniques Raster Vs. Vector-Who Wins?

By now even regular clients who use photo-editing services know that there is something called Raster graphics and Vector scaling. But the finesse of the two only the skilled designers will know. How can creativity bring the two diverse techniques in one design is a challenge.

Now that even novices know the power of vector graphics they prefer to use them always. In fact they recommend it to all the regular and potential clients. But a seasoned designer knows that there are areas where the two can be used together. Yet, this is one more area where the basic vs advanced, pros Vs amateurs, unsheathe their swords. Even though there are major differences they can be used amicably in churning out some images. The end product can be really unique.  The raster images can be drawn from Corel draw. Their pixel stretches when the image is enlarged. The composition looks imperfect. The colors also tend to change. The vector images are actually illustrated in comparison. When they are enlarged the distortion is minimal. While doing photo editing vector images tend to be more flexible in handling. Vector works in a line. These lines can be manipulated in many ways. A designer can mould the image like clay. Since there is no loss of quality it tends to overpower raster images.

The photos that reach the viewer need to have a humane approach. The realism keeps the viewer focused on it. And for the common man it makes no difference if it is raster or vector. The pixilated look of raster images can be unappealing. Hence, when they are clicked, care should be taken. Vector images are more calculated and tend to have an aura of perfection around them. With the combination of smart object filter, Illustrator, a raster image can be combined with that of a vector image. There are many examples that can be seen online of such combinations. The best of both the systems are used. Artistic posters can have a combined effect of both Raster and Vector.  Ideally a vector image can be put in the background and a raster image can be blended in well. Many new designs are possible with the two being used. Vector images are made of objects of several colors. The color schemes can be changes too. Since there is no question of keeping a track on pixels, the vector image can be cropped or enlarged. It can be used in the following formats-EPS, WMF, AI, CDR, DXF, SVG, or PLT.

The scanned raster images or graphics are used for photos, digital paintings, or even a web design. GIMP and raster based software use RBG or CYMK color mode. The resolution qualities of photos are critical. They cannot be enlarged without loss of some value. Hence they can be used within certain limit. To avoid jagged images the editor does not touch it after it has achieved its maximum capacity. Such images can be paired with vector treated ones. Eventually the printing shapes the ultimate drawing.

There will always be a difference between the two. It is up to an artist or designer to make use of them. Until now, the design element preferred vector graphics. But when there is no limit to creativity and innovation then why not use best of both?

Raster to Vector Conversion Technique Is No Rocket Science!

Many people outside the graphic industry may not understand what Raster to vector conversation is. But the graphic industry fully comprehends it. This may be a multifaceted tool but it can be mastered.

Raster to vector conversion more popularly called as R2V is a key resource in the photo editing industry. It is wrong to label that the technology is used only in the image editing industry. But, in reality it implications are as farfetched. If it is used to design logos and edit images, it is also used to mapping and GIS data transformation. It has revolutionized the entire designing process. The merits of vectorization as the process is popularly called have already been established. It is vastly used in vector clipart, various Internet icons, logo vectorization, and multi-purpose graphics.

Here are some other facets of the technology.

The conversion of raster to vector-

The conversion of raster to vector is no rocket science. But using software popularly called as CAD Converters does the process. If the conversion needs are bulk, then the best choice is to outsource it to professionals. But for day-to-day needs, it is justified to use Cad Converters. They are simple software that can concert raster image to vector image. The selection of software plays a very important role in defining the result. Here are some points that must be considered before making a selection.

  • Ideally, those converters that can convert different type of images like mechanical and architectural drawings, schematic diagrams and maps; technical diagrams and photos are best chosen.
  • Raster images are available in different formats e.g. JPG, GIF, BMP, PNG, TIF etc.  Well chosen software should be able to convert all these type of raster images to vector form.
  • Like raster images, the vector images can also be produced in different formats. The needs differ from one industry to the other. A converter that can produce DGN, WMF, SVG and DXF formats are preferred over those, which can produce some selected formats.
  • The software must be easy to use and should have clear user interface. It should produce straight outlines and central lines. This is particularly important for some type of vector images like GIS images. Users prefer software that produces vivid joins and corners.
  • In this fast world, instant results are mandatory. So, the popular choice goes with software that produces high quality instant results. Generally, vector images do not loose quality even if they are printed at any resolution. One should make sure that the quality is maintained.
  • Often professionals using converters are in need of several images, maps or drawings at a time. Able software should able to convert hundreds of raster images to vector image with single command prompt. This helps professionals with large number of images. Mostly the process is automated so that the user does not need to hinder the process of conversion. On the other hand, there is several software that converts single images at time. There is no reason to believe that these converters produce better results that those which produce several images at a time.

Just keep all these points in mind before selecting the best converter available in the market.

How to Produce a Vector Image from Raster or Bitmap Image?

Raster (or bitmap) images are described by an array or map of bits within a rectangular grid of pixels or dots. Lines, shapes, and other graphic image components stored in a format that incorporates geometric formulas for rendering the image elements describe vector images. Defining points and curves using software like Illustrator and Coral Draw creates the vector image. When vector graphics are scaled, the edges remain crisp and sharp regardless of the size.

In this tutorial one can learn how to convert a simple bitmap or raster image into a vector-using illustrator.

Step 1

Firstly choose an image that needs to be converted from raster to vector, when doing this it is important that one chooses a bitmap image, as they are raster images.

Open the desired image on illustrator making sure the image is large and can be zoomed in for better results.

Step 2

Once the image is opened, one can use the ‘pen’ tool from the ‘tool’ section or one can press the key ‘p’ on the keyboard, which is a shortcut for the pen tool on illustrator.

Step 3

After selecting the pen tool one can needs to go to the ‘color palette’ and select an appropriate color and stroke weight in context to the image. The color usually would be darker and different to the outline of image to reduce confusion when outlining the image.

Step 4

Once color is chosen and stroke weight set, one can click one the edge of the image and drag the mouse along to a distance and letting it go. This has to be done precisely over the curvature of the image making sure not much of the image is lost. This should be continued till one reaches to the starting point of the line drawn around the image. The ‘close path’ option may be clicked once the whole image has been drawn with and outline. One can then fill color in the outlined image by going in to color palette and filling in color.

Step 5

Once happy with the selection the original raster image can be deleted and the vector image would be created as a result. This image is now ready to be used separately to the original one and can be colored or used in a different image.

While converting raster images to vector make sure that there is a backup copy of the bitmap image before one starts with the conversion settings.  Also saving the work often so one does not have to start all over again in case something goes wrong is a very good idea.
